Since first becoming a credentialed minister in the Church of God in 1954, Bishop Robert E. Daugherty distinguished himself as a respected pastor, leader in church planting and evangelism, and state administrator. Before and after retirement, he served for 23 years as a World Missions Field Representative. During his ministry, he served on many boards and committees, including the Lee University Board of Directors and numerous state-level boards. He served as Bible teacher and night speaker at several camp meetings and preached at the 1982 General Assembly.
The Dixon Pentecostal Research Center has now added to our holdings the Robert Daugherty collection that contains scores of sermons and lessons developed by Bishop Daugherty. Dr. Dan Tomberlin was instrumental in getting the collection to us and Sharon Tomberlin volunteered hours of labor in creating the initial inventory and description of the sermon materials. Under the leadership of Bishop Gary Lewis, the Church of God of South Georgia, where the Daugherty family spent decades in ministry, funded the development and housing of the collection at the Dixon Pentecostal Research Center. Robert and Patricia Daugherty gathered at the Center today, along with the Lewises, Tomberlins, and Director David Roebuck, to celebrate the processing of this valuable resource on Pentecostal preaching.
The Dixon Center continues to develop our resources on Pentecostal and Charismatic preaching that we see as a valuable means to get at both the culture and theology of the movements. If you or a family member have similar collections of sermon materials consider donating them to us. If you would like to partner with the Center financially in pursuit of this mission you can find out more here.
